A Note about System Requirements

The faster your CPU, the faster the software will process your images. Therefore, it is advisable to buy the fastest computer you can. While more RAM will also help speed up the processing, it is the speed of the CPU that directly affects how fast SoftRIP runs. If you are processing large files over 100 MB in size, it is also advisable to upgrade your hardware configuration to include significantly more memory than the minimum requirement specified above.

Wasatch SoftRIP can process more than one image at a time and take advantage of multiple CPUs for this purpose. For every additional processor in your computer, it is recommended you double the amount of RAM, up to a maximum of 512 MB per processor. It is important to use terabyte solid-state drives on computers that are intended for use in high-resolution printing, especially if you plan to keep RIP'd files available in the Wasatch Print Queue.
